Recently I find my blog is full of review to the point I get bored reading my own blog hahah XD sorry if I make you feel bored too :p
But today, I want to have a small talk about Mr.Blackhead and Mrs. Whitehead, which I'm sure is the most hated couple by girls lol.
Got the idea to talk about this couple since I found some oh-so-gross video on youtube about them that I'll put on this post later too so if you're eating or don't like to watch something like that you can close this tab now LOL
So let's start with the simple questions first, what is whiteheads and blackheads? What's the difference between them?
Blackheads are the "open" whiteheads. They builld in hair follicles and have a wide opening. Sebum, defined as dead cells and bacteria, forms at the surface of the skin. Once these contaminants drain, the surrounding skin's pigment will change color. This is what gives blackhead it's signature darkness.
How to treat blackheads?
Use cleansing products that can remove dead skin. Adding an acne toner will help to exfoliate skin and prevent pores from clogging. Drink plenty of water. Lack of hydration can contribute to blackheads. Using products with too much oil, either cleansing products or makeup, will contribute to clogged pores.
On the other side, Whiteheads contain sebum, oil, and other cellular fragments. However, they form beneath the hair follicle and stay completely under the skin. This means they do not oxidize and turn brown or black like blackheads. Whiteheads tend to be stiffer than blackheads and can be more difficult to treat because they stay under the skin.
How to treat Whiteheads?
Since whiteheads occur in closed pores, it's important to try and open them up. There's and old, but effective method; place a towel over your head and hold your head over the steam from boiling water - this will help open your pores. Diet contributes heavily to whiteheads; make sure to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. As with blackheads, avoid greasy or oily products, especially greasy sunscreens.
